Medium Textured Bowl
Made by Rory Shearer
Medium hand thrown bowl by Rory Shearer in Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland.
Concentrating on surface, his pieces are no longer just containers, but are hollow forms that you want to pick up, touch, move your hand over the surface and examine the exterior. Rory’s work shares characteristics with large abstract painting, beautiful from a distance but compelling you to look ever closer.
Approximate Measurements: height 11cm x diameter 13.5cm
